PENELOPE by Enda Walsh


From a re-telling of the Greek myth: When Ulysses failed to return, suitors flocked around Penelope. They were rude, greedy, overbearing men, who spent their days sitting in the great hall of the house devouring Ulysses’ store of provisions, slaughtering his cattle, his sheep, his swine, drinking his wine, giving orders to his servants. They would never leave, they declared, until Penelope consented to marry one of them. Complete with its echoes of Beckett, Pinter and of course James Joyce, Penelope premiered at the Druid Theatre in Galway, before playing at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2010, echoing the successful trajectory of Walsh’s earlier hits.
